Cooper York Fest 2022

It's that time of year again: time for our annual Cooper York Fest!

What's the Cooper York Fest, you ask?

It's a free festival celebrating our neighborhood of Cooper-Young with a mix of beer, music, art, and food, all from our corner of Cooper Street and York Avenue.

This year's festival is Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It will feature live music from Jeff Hulett, San Salida, and the Late Greats. They'll be performing in the big tent in our parking lot, so there should be plenty of shade to help everyone keep cool.

Food trucks Soi#9 and Mexixo in Memphis will be in our parking lot as well, just behind the ramp leading into our taproom.

We will also have a mix of local makers from around the region.

Last but not least, we'll have a wide variety of beers including some you'll only find in our taproom.

Kristy Keptra designed this year's poster and shirt, both of which will be available for purchase.

Summer Frills at Huey's and the Captain is Back

We have two beers coming out this week to help you kick off your summer.

Fist, we teamed up with hometown favorite Huey's on a limited-edition beer, Summer Frills. This beer will only be available on draft at Huey's locations throughout the Mid-South and our Cooper-Young taproom while supplies last.

This week also sees the return of Aye-Aye Captain, our Tropical Ale for the summer. This beer will be in cans and kegs throughout West Tennessee and North Mississippi through the summer.

Here are some beer descriptions to help you plan your summer drinking:

 

Aye-Aye Captain (5.5 percent ABV)

We went deep under the sea and rounded up all the uninhibited pineapples and threw them into this tropical ale. It also has a little lime and mango for a super refreshing addition to your summer. 

 

Summer Frills (6.2 percent ABV)   

Get your summer started right with a burger and a beer. Memphis Made and Huey's teamed up to provide you with endless Summer Frills. Well, endless until we run out of beer.

 

Summer Frills is an easy-drinking Golden Ale made with Vienna and Pilsner malt, and a touch of wheat. Saaz hops round it out with delicate spice note.

Hopped is Back!

After a little time off, we're happy to say that Hopped is coming back.

This hoppy beer festival will be Saturday, May 14 from noon to 10 p.m.

We'll have a bunch of new hoppy beers released during the festival, as our brewers have been working hard on some new offereings as well as some old hoppy favorites.

We're also giving away a Hopped glass to the first 100 customers.

There are also going to be limited edition Hopped shirts and merchandise available, celebrating that most noble plant of plants which gives us so much flavor and joy in this life.

There will be music from Church Brothers to provide a soundtrack for the day.

Gourmade and Soi #9 will be on site with their food trucks so that you can enjoy something to eat without missing any of the beer or music.

We'll end the day with a show by the Comma Comedians.

It's free admission all day, so come by and get your hoppy beer fix with us.
